In our May 26th post, I included a great video from Datamax O’Neil that showcases the RL4 rugged mobile printer. Rugged mobile label printers like the RL4 are ideal for warehouses because they increase efficiency and reduce errors while withstanding harsh conditions. Typical warehouse processes that can be improved with mobile printing include:
- Receiving-printing labels at the point of receiving eliminates trips back and forth to a stationary printer. This reduces errors and ensures that 100% of incoming items are labeled.
- Putaway-integrated solutions that involve mobile printers, mobile computers and wireless networks enable employees to enter label requests, update inventory and receive information to print appropriate labels via the handheld device and mobile printer.
- Picking-printing bar code labels at the point of picking speeds up the sorting of items for shipment.
